Ouseburn Farm Fundraising Event
Ouseburn Farm Charity are holding a bag pack at Byker Asda on Saturday 8th June between 10am and 3pm. It is in walking distance of Chillingham Road metro station and very close to Heaton. The event is to raise funds for the charity, the only urban farm in Newcastle where entry is free but in order to continue serving the local community they rely upon donations. They also offer training opportunities and placements for vulnerable adults and adults with learning disabilities at both the farm and a nearby wood workshop.
Volunteers will be required to stand at the packing area of the tills and ask the customers if they would like help with their packing. Some customers will say no but may still make a donation and others will say yes but ask for things to be packed in a certain order. The role of the volunteer is to be polite, help the customers where possible and encourage them to make a donation in the collection buckets.
Volunteers are welcome to volunteer for the full day or for a minimum 2 hour slot. As a volunteer you will get the benefit of helping a charity raise money that will have an immediate impact on the lives of those who rely on the farm.
